In 2013, Toyin married a fellow Nollywood actor, Adeniyi Johnson. The union lasted for two years before they parted ways in 2015. There were reports of miscommunications and infidelity as the reason for the divorce.

Toyin would later publicly date Seun in 2016 after the divorce.

Adeniyi, in an interview, said, “When a relationship doesn’t work, both people are at fault. But when it reaches the point where someone is being painted black and the other person is being painted as a saint, it can’t be a one-man factor to crash a marriage.

“For instance, I was accused of cheating. I heard a lot, I read a lot and till now there’s no evidence. The Internet doesn’t forget.

“Seun Egbegbe, permit me to mention the name, I’m not spiting anybody, I’m just making reference, he said as at May 31 they started seeing and we still celebrated our second year anniversary by July.

“But at the same time, I take all fault. If I had managed the situation well as a man. It wouldn’t have gotten to the point it got to.”

May GOD continue to bless and uplift you and may GOD give me the strength to be able to pay you back,
